What’s really important?

Morgan Freeman once said money was never enough. But he speaks as one the tops in his profession. Him and George Burns even played GOD.


You can make more money, but you can’t make more time. When they close the lid on the box, will you have served your greater purpose.

Simon Sinek went out to discover his why, will you? You go to work for the money because nothing comes free. But if you hate your job and you stay for the paycheck how happy will you be. Making a lot of money can buy you a bigger house, but will it make you content at home? It can buy you a fast car, but you can’t outrun time.

There are some people who want financial wealth at all cost. Is ill gotten gains and living lavishly a way to heaven on earth and a one-way ticket to hell? Thirty pieces of silver was a fortune at the time, but Judas was his name.  He had the money, but he was so unhappy he hung himself. When we chase money at all cost, we betray ourselves by not discovering our true purpose.

Don’t be afraid to step out and follow your dreams. Be aware that when you step out to do something different, there will be some who won’t understand. Some will be family, and some will be friends. Don’t let their fear keep you from doing what’s deep within. Your destiny is in your own hands.

You may not have the money or the support but don’t let that stop you. Your past does not dictate your future. You don’t have to settle for ordinary. It takes a strong mind and a lot of grind to leave the past behind. Some won’t understand because they have never ventured out beyond making a steady buck. To them working on something beyond a job is wishful thinking or just poor luck.

We all have gifts and talents waiting for us to bring them into the world. The world is full of delayed dreams and silent screams as people get so busy trying to earn a living, they forget to design a good life. Or they look around and realize that they have run out of time.

You will grow through, what you go through.  If you can keep your focus you will be able to see what others can’t imagine. You will develop such an insight that you will be able to see the invisible, and do the impossible. You become the one-eyed man, in the land of the blind.  Every one else is trying to feel their way around but you can see. You learn to do what’s necessary and when you have done all that you can you do what’s required.

I'm a two time military veteran (Air Force & US Army). I started blogging to keep my mind active after 40+ years of work. I joined the Air Force to escape the auto assembly line in Detroit. I went to Libya North Africa where Col. Muammar Graddafi was forcing the closure of the base there. The base commander, Col. Daniel "Chappie" James kept a lid on the situation. I was later commissioned in the Army, and "Chappie" became the first African American Four Star General for the Air Force. Blogging just opened up the flood gates. Standing in the Shadows, Listening to the Greats!!! will be my blog novel. If you don't write your story who will?
